Normally one starts the Sankatahara Ganpati Vrata from Shravana. It is done for say 1 year or 12 months as in 12 chatuthi’s - or for 12 yrs or 21 years depending on your wish. For those who would like to start the Chaturthi from this month as a vrata please note the link – Shravana
The vrata katha is given in that link. Incase you cant follow the entire procedure due to work schedule or any other problems then kindly chant the 108 names of Ganesha along with Sankatahara Stotra from Narada Purana.
